Do you still know people who would let us get back to the pits and "touch" the meat? Any info would be helpful!
Do a crawl of all three. Easy to do with the way they serve the meat by the pound. Smitty's closes at 6:00 so plan accordingly.
Each one has its good points. If atmosphere is important to you, Smitty's first, Black's next then Kreuz. If brisket is important it depends on what particular brisket they cut into for you. Last time I was there, Kreuz's was the best.
